Awesome Music / Star Fox

Go To

It's worth noting that Star Fox Online has a jukebox for listening to any track in the series and even Star Fox related tracks from the Super Smash Bros. series.

Star Fox
  • The awesome Main Theme, which plays during the credits, just feels EPIC, as if it was taken right from Star Wars. A true reward for beating Andross. The OST featured an Arrange Version of the song, and it got a nice remix in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

  • The original also kicks off in style with the first mission having one of the best action themes ever, Corneria, which also had an awesome cover in the Super Smash Bros. series. It was also reused as a bonus track in Zero when playing as the Retro Arwing in Corneria.
  • "Asteroid/Venom Orbital", a suspenseful orchestrated song that plays during said stages.
  • The theme for the alternate final boss, Out of This Dimension for the Slot Machine, is very catchy and does a good job of keeping up the level's status as a Mind Screw.
  • The Space Armada track also stands out. It's a tune that perfectly captures the adrenaline you would feel in a mid-space dogfight. It got remixed for Brawl.
  • The Training Mode music is extremely catchy.
  • The Meteor theme is like the Space Armada theme in that it captures the intense, high-stakes feel of a sudden attack on an enemy base and the vicious firefight that ensues.

Star Fox 2

  • There is an unlockable Corneria theme done in Star Fox 2's instruments. It replaces the character select when you've reached a certain score with each pilot.
  • Eladard's Godlike music has been criminally underutilized since Star Fox 2.
  • Surprise Attack, Star Wolf's theme, sounds much different to the one you're used to; it's much more intense.
  • The first surprise when visiting Venom was seeing how pristine it was compared to the rest of the series. The second surprise came when you heard its new theme: Venom.

Star Fox 64

  • The Opening music. It's easy to see why this became the new theme of the series, as the repeating brass instruments carry a bold and courageous swagger that make the player want to jump in and fly with the Star Fox team.
  • Area 6 is a beloved second to last level due to the frentic and blood pumping music track that gives the best equivalent to Orchestral Bombing an N64 synth track can offer. It does an excellent job at communicating to the player that they are in the home stretch in reaching the Golden Ending, but the enemy won't go down without a fight.

  • The boss themes: Boss A and Boss B. Also the True Final Boss.
  • The map screen theme, Destinations Map, is pretty epic, too.
  • Zoness is gut-wrenchingly bittersweet considering the planet's backstory.
  • The Aquas theme also adds to the "oh god, what happened here" feeling of the history of its planet.
  • The theme to Solar and Sector Y is very epic, as is its remix in Assault, where it plays in the Sargasso Space Hideout.
  • The theme to Macbeth and Titania really gives off a military feel.
  • Sector X, a low-key track played with flat notes and quiet instruments that give the track a creepy and sinister vibe that fits with the exploration of the destroyed base.
  • Katina's theme features a heroic sounding music piece reminiscent of Independence Day that matches the reunion of Fox and Bill.
  • The second credits theme (Staff Credits 2). Pretty calm too, like you are finally going to get rewarded for playing through the 7 planets and are finally taking a much deserved sleep.
  • Mission Accomplished really gives off a sense of triumph and victory.
  • The original Star Wolf theme, a fast-paced and tense leitmotif that's reoccurred throughout the series, telling the player right away that these aren't your ordinary enemies.

Star Fox Adventures

Star Fox: Assault

  • The Main Menu theme is so epic, it gets you totally revved up to destroy the Aparoids or demolish your friends in Versus mode...
  • And then we have the second half of Fortuna.
  • Assault had many epic themes, including the jaw-droppingly epic Aparoid Queen (Phase 1) theme, as well as the breath taking Aparoid Queen (Phase 2).
  • Sauria features a textbook John Williams-style soundtrack.
  • This game's version of Star Wolf's theme ups the ante by adding a fantastic trumpet to the mix.
  • The epic song that plays when Team Star Fox go through the Oribital Gate and when Peppy crashes the Great Fox into the Aparoid shield. Sadly, no one's been able to rip the song, but it did get a remix (Heroes of Old, Peppy Hare and James McCloud) in Command.
  • It's interesting to note that the main story of the game features mainly orchestral versions of Star Fox 64 tracks, some of which are original pieces, while the multiplayer mode plays techno music in place. Special mention could go to Zoness and Katina.
  • Vs. Gamepoint. When a player's next point wins, a player is on their last life or there's one minute left, that's when shit starts to get real and the player in last gets the BFG of a Demon Launcher.

Star Fox Command

Star Fox Zero

  • Many fans agree that Zero's soundtrack is one of the best, if not the best, in the whole series. The theme for Corneria, the first level in the game, gets you in the mood for some high-flying space-furry dogfighting action with an awesome orchestra/electronic mix.
  • The Map theme includes a snippet of the original Star Fox map theme.
  • The new remix of Star Wolf's Leitmotif is widely considered one of the best versions of the song. The bombastic orchestra and intimidating choir certainly set the mood for the amazing battles against Star Wolf.
  • The theme for Andross himself. The Ominous Latin Chanting played throughout this charged, epic theme drives home that this time, Andross is holding nothing back.
  • The theme for Sector Alpha. Nothing like mixing high-tension space battle music with a little bit of One-Woman Wail to emphasize the epicness.
  • The Sector Omega boss theme. Titled "Interplanetary Combat Ship, Attack Carrier", the song is an amazing remix of Boss B from 64 that plays during this game's version of the Attack Carrier. It also plays for the Great Fox boss Cosmic Dodora and during Andross's attempt at Taking You with Me.
  • The remix of the All Clear theme from Star Fox 64 is given an epic, triumphant feel with an orchestral flourish that makes it a perfect cap to the adventure.
